|We regret to inform you that all of the in-person APS CUWiP meetings planned for January 21-23, 2022 have now been cancelled, due to a combination of evolving public health issues. CUWiP 2022 will now be a completely virtual meeting taking place on the same dates. For more information about this virtual meeting, please refer to this website, which will be updated in the coming days.|
The APS Conferences for Undergraduate Women in Physics (CUWiP) are three-day regional conferences for undergraduate physics majors. The 2022 conferences will be held January 21-23, 2022.
Application is free and open between August 30 and October 4, 2021.
The goal of APS CUWiP is to help undergraduate women continue in physics by providing them with the opportunity to experience a professional conference, information about graduate school and professions in physics, and access to other women in physics of all ages with whom they can share experiences, advice, and ideas. The national and local organizing committees of APS CUWiP strive to create a welcoming environment for all, including undergraduate women and gender minorities.
The 2022 program at Clemson University will include research talks, panel discussions about graduate school and careers in physics, workshops and discussions about women in physics, student research talks and poster sessions, and laboratory tours.
**APS requires all conference attendees to be fully vaccinated prior to attending CUWiP. You will be required to submit proof of vaccination prior to the conference. Requests will come in a separate email at a later time. Additionally a negative COVID test taken within 72 hours of the start of the meeting will be required.

CUWiP has become incredibly popular. In order to maximize the number of CUWiP participants we can accommodate, we will allocate participants to sites based on travel logistics and site capacity. We will aim to follow the distributions outlined below, but may have to make adjustments. Please do not purchase travel or plan to be at a specific site until you receive an email confirming you have been accepted to a specific CUWiP site.
These conferences are supported in part by the National Science Foundation (PHY-1346627) and by the Department of Energy Office of Science (DE-SC0011076). Further details are available on the APS conference website
